How to install Searchanise plugin Print

Modified on: Thu, Jun 25, 2020 at 8:03 PM


Before the installation, please check the version of your WooCommerce plugin. You can find it in your Wordpress admin panel in Plugins > Installed plugins. If it’s 3.0.0 or higher, you’re good to go.


You can install Smart WooCommerce Search by Searchanise in 3 ways - two simple ways and the advanced one.


Installing Searchanise through Wordpress plugin search

It’s the easiest way. All you need to do is:

  1. Log in to Wordpress admin panel.

  2. Go to Plugins > Add new and enter Searchanise into the search bar on the right.

  1. Click Install now and wait a couple of seconds for the plugin to install.

  2. Click Activate and the indexation of your store will start.

  1. Searchanise is installed and you can go play with its settings. The control panel can be found at Products > Searchanise.


Installing Searchanise through Wordpress admin plugin upload

This one is pretty simple too. Just do the following:

  1. Download the plugin zip archive from here by clicking the Download button.

  1. Log in to your Wordpress admin panel.

  2. Go to Plugins > Add new and click Upload plugin at the top.

  1. Browse and select the smart-search-for-woocommerce.zip archive you have downloaded earlier.

  1. Click Install now and wait a second.

  2. Click Activate plugin as the installation is done. Indexation of your store has started.

  3. Now you can go to Products > Searchanise to start setting up the plugin you installed so easily.


Installing Searchanise manually through FTP

This method is a bit harder than the previous two. You may need it in case your provider has file restrictions that could prevent you from installing a plugin from the admin area. This is what you should do:

  1. Download the plugin zip archive from here by clicking the Download button.

  1. Extract the archive to your computer. You’ll get a folder named smart-search-for-woocommerce with a bunch of files in it.

  2. Open the FTP client on your computer and access your website with FTP/SFTP credentials. If you don’t have any, contact your hosting provider to obtain them.

  3. Go to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory of your website and upload the folder you extracted at step 3 there.

  1. Log in to your Wordpress admin panel.

  2. Go to Plugins > Installed plugins and find Smart WooCommerce Search by Searchanise. It’s already there!

  1. Activate the plugin and the indexation starts.

  2. Now go to Products > Searchanise and start setting your new plugin up.
